Ruben Guthrie (2015)
Critic Reviews for Ruben Guthrie
Cowell makes his feature film début as writer/director/producer, bringing it to the screen with Patrick Brammall in terrific, tormented form as our titular 'hero'.
Perhaps Ruben Guthrie makes more sense if you watch it while drunk. Being sober, I loathed it.
An initially archetypal trajectory (boy loses girl; boy goes on mission to get her back) becomes something curlier and less conventional, with lashings of abrasive dialogue that recall its stage origins
It might be a case of something essential getting lost in the translation, but first-time director Brendan Cowell's adaptation of his play about an alcoholic advertising man on the road to redemption is a well-intentioned mess.
